I'm starting a Nature club with a focus on stewardship for our middle school students at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy. I would love to incorporate aspects of MEP into our club.
Sustainable Actions in this Community
We are a Montessori school in a neighborhood of Savannah - we take students by application and lottery and have a diverse population of students from grades pk-8th grade. I work with what Montessori calls Erdkinder (children of the Earth) which are the adolescents (7 & 8 grade).
We have a nature and gardening club where we are working to engender good stewardship by taking care of our community. We do trash pick-ups, recycling, planting.
Currently we are teaching them about soil erosion and working to stop the soil erosion in our front yard by planting some fast-growing plants along the fence.
We are always looking for new ways to help.
